Monday Monday

Today I made seared ahi tuna for the first time. First I marinated the tuna in a mixture of soy sauce, lime juice, sherry, freshly grated ginger, garlic, scallions, cilantro & peppercorns. After a 1/2 an hour I rinsed off the marinade, brushed the tuna lightly with olive oil and rolled it in sesame seeds. Then I seared it on a flat griddle. I served it with an asian cabbage slaw that had mandarin oranges, fresh pineapple, toasted sliced almonds and more sesame seeds mixed together with a rice wine vinaigrette. I also made a cucumber and onion salad. I intended to serve a little thai peanut sauce along with it but my bottle had gone bad in the cupboard. I also forgot to pick up some wasabi and pickled ginger both of which would have made this just about perfect. I was really pleased with the results nevertheless, especially for my first attempt.
